Sorry to hear you're having some problems in your personal life, it sounds like Crete is being very flexible allowing you to handle these issues. If you leave Crete I'm sure you'll have no problem finding something that fits you better given how hard you work.

I would hope that he could resolve whatever his personal issues are without having to leave Crete. I was just speaking to another of their drivers & hes been with them 3 years & is making ,12 cents per mile more than I do. And with how hard Jamie runs? I'm sure hes making some nice bank!

Good luck with your family/personal problems Jamie. Hope your parents are not suffering either. Mine are up there in the years & I'm very blessed to still have them in my life.

Splitter, this is the second time you've posted recently about what some Crete driver's told you what their cpm is. We currently top out at 57 cpm.

Best to ask to see their pay stub when any driver starts offering up big numbers because they're telling you a tall tale.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Recruiter told me I'd start at between .56-.58 running reefer.

Starting Pay: $.53 to $.56 per practical mile for OTR Drivers

That's from your company's website. I did ask somebody & I did my due diligence. Why do you enjoy calling me out, is what I'd like to know? You dont see me calling you out on spewing your rhetoric against liberals or Democrats like we're the enemy on the receiving end of your scope

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Crete is dry van.

Shaffer is refer.

Calling you out by questioning what you indeed posted twice? Spewing rhetoric? I deal in factual information that can be verified and proven. Not sure about you.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

You're right. I'm wrong. Not going there with you. Learned my lesson from the last time when you accused me of getting my feelings hurt when it was nothing close to that.

They got me too, Jamie. I'm assigned to the same DC this week. Just returned with a backhaul of pallets after a two-stop trip up to South Dakota. Two lane most of the trip.

Snap a photo if you go to 3237, I used to stack those pallets for backhauls.

If you're still at the DC do you have any time to meet up? I'm going to be back around 11am.
